Sunday ride to Witney and Burford

Sunday, 3 June 2018 - 9:30am

A ride taking us into the lower reaches of the glorious Cotswolds. A flat ride to coffee, with some gentle hills leading to the drop down into Little Barrington and the lovely small road along the valley into Burford. The highly recommended pies in The Royal Oak will hopefully sustain us for the wind-assisted ride home.

Ride report

Can be difficult to find space to park 25 bikes at the coffee stop. Our solution was to appoint a couple of bike guards (see photo).
